In 2012, SWF sponsored Dr. Yongang Fan from the Institute of Policy and Management in the Chinese Academy of Sciences, to be a visiting scholar at the George Washington University's Space Policy Institute (SPI). During his time at SPI, Dr. Fan conducted research on national strategies for promoting the use of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), such as the American' Global Positioning System (GPS), the Russian Glonass system, and the European Galileo system. Based on his research, Dr. Fan analyzed the implications for China to promote adoption of its BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) as a latecomer to the GNSS field. and developed policy recommendations for Chinese decision-makers. 

Dr. Fan's research has recently been published in Space Policy journal, and can be found here.
